How to Change the Measurements

Changing the size of the proportional measurement is easy, just clip it in the correct hole and use the ends to shrink or enlarge the scale. To change the proportions, you pull the little tab back to the side, away from the end that's forked. It comes off easily. Pull the peg off both sides and insert it into another hole - count the same number of holes on both pieces. Push the peg through your selected hole and slide the white plastic holder over it again till it snaps. Make sure that little ridge is sticking up and you can push it till the peg snaps into the far end of the notch. Then it's solid.

If you want to enlarge a small reference, move the legs till the small end of the X shaped tool is just touching the dimension you want to measure - say, the width of a head. Adjust it while it's on the reference. You can also do the same thing at arm's length holding it in front of you to look at a live model or static object you're drawing from life - as long as you don't move, the length of your arm is consistent and you'll get accurate relative proportions.

Without moving the legs, turn the X shaped Prospek so that the wide end is on your paper. Make tick marks where the points fall. This also lets you place your reference on the page easier - the proportion remains consistent wherever you put the wide end of the Prospek so you can decide to move the head farther from the edge of the paper or make it off center easier.

The legs move easily and stay at the same proportion once moved unless you move them again. Friction holds them firmly in place no matter how many times I use this little handy tool.

If you want to reduce a large subject, just reverse the process. Use the wide end of the tool to measure your object and the smaller end to make your tick marks on the paper. Once you have the tick marks in place, connect the dots with a freehand line.

Prospek Proportional Divider Drawing Tool is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I had tried 4 self portraits and none of them had any likeness at all. Then I got the proportional divider and I got a great likeness. I have to say that it is a bit challenging to use in when looking in a mirror since you see 2 images but with a little concentration you can make it work. Thumbs up on this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to use and inexpensive Had a "proportioner" that had been used by engineers, but found this one to be excellent for the price and light weight and easy to use. It is very helpful for correcting/checking proportions when drawing, designing or painting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for my use! I made a divider myself for temporary use until this one came in the mail. My was flumsy and inaccurate. When my product arrived it was heaven.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Huge 'Yes' I have wanted one of these for a long time. I find that a proportional divider is exactly what I need to spot on my portraits from photographs. Saves me a lot of time. The tool was on sale at a fine price so I am happy about that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Aid I have been using this proportional divider for years and it has made all the difference. It literally changed my life. Suddenly I was able to paint portraits but it is good for anything but especially figures, animals, and buildings. I started out painstakingly marking many many many position marks on my paper, but now I just use it to check my freehand drawing. It doesn't draw for you but gives you immediate feedback on how well you are doing. Pretty soon you will develop a good eye without realizing it just from using it over a period of time. I now teach watercolor classes and urge my students to use this incredibly clever device. If you want to learn to draw, get one of these.

Thank you for your response to my previous question, saying that you do not sell a wooden version of the Prospek proportional divider.  But under "key features" in the description it says:  "Hardwood Finished In Mahogany Color."

Asked by: Alan in California
Thank you for pointing that copy description error out. I can reassure you that item 32839 is made of strong plastic and not wood. I have talked with the director of our warehouse to confirm that the proportional divider is made of plastic and not wood. The plastic is a red mahogany color, so that might be the source of the typo. I have corrected the error in the key features that mentioned wood. I apologize that I did not catch that error when I first answered this question. I appreciate your understanding. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

I am apprehensive that the wooden version will be less durable than the old plastic one. Am I correct? And does it come with some sort of protective cover?
